Parker (middle) recruits Reynolds and Bridges for afterlife police duty

Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D. as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people.  His mission?  To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.

Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork.  When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance…or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.

Starring alongside Bridges and Reynolds in R.I.P.D.  are Kevin Bacon  as Bobby Hayes, Nick’s partner before he’s taken out in the line of duty; Mary-Louise Parker  as Proctor, Nick and Roy’s tough-as-nails bureau chief in the R.I.P.D.; and Stephanie Szostak as Julia, Nick’s widow who must find out the reason behind his untimely
departure before she is forced to play an unwelcome role in the world’s end.

Rounding out the cast of supporting roles are legendary character actor James Hong as Nick’s very unexpected elderly avatar and supermodel Marisa Miller  as Roy’s very sexy one.

R.I.P.D. is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and produced by Neal Moritz (Fast & Furious series, I Am Legend), Mike Richardson and Michael Fottrell.

R.I.P.D. is based on the Dark Horse comic created by Peter  Lenkov, and it is from a story by David Dobkin and Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi

“RIPD” opens August 21, 2013 in theaters nationwide is released and distri-buted by United International Pictures through Solar Entertainment Corp.
